. why is light versus dark still an issue? maybe the broader america doesn't understand lighter skinned black people were treated better because they were seen more proximate to the dominant white culture, given better privileges in slavery because they were produced by unions between white men and black women. there is a huge tension in the broader society. lighter skinned blacks are seen tore liked by whites. negro dialect, what does that mean? jesse jackson is one of the most eloquent men we know, so is al sharpton. they all ran for president of the united states of america. joe biden made the same comments. mr. obama needs to step up to the bully pulpit and not be loathe to deal with the issue of race and say this is a teachable moment. yes, we can can accept the apology of mr. reid. let's deal with light skinned versus dark skinned and teach america about some of these more vicious issues. otherwise they do look like hypocrites in my book. >> i heard so many people over the weekend say they were surprised by this but you cover the election, as did i. there were people who did not u
but apparently happening more and more here in america according to clergy, especially in southern california. these underground first communions and baptisms are happening in parks, hotel banquet halls and backyards. authorities say the priests are coming in from mexico and trying to raise money for their own parishes. >> sacraments are not to be sold. they're not to be bought by people. they're to be understood as gifts of god. and clergy who charge people for niece things distort the very meaning what it is for god to be a gift giving creature. >> reporter: father figueroa of the diocese is one of the accused. some clergy here in los angeles even sending memos to their own parishioners warning what he may be up to and trying to do here in america but father figueroa is widely popular in his own country of mexico. his own parish rolls right around 8,000 people. figueroa says he's only trying to minister to the community in the best way he knows how and doesn't believe he's done anything wrong. still no word if he will face official sanctions from the roman catholic church or his bishop. in
disadvantageous dark skinned americans. white america americns are lessg to vote for dark skinned americans. >> despite the quote/unquote negro dialect, is there truth to what he said? >> it's stupid. first of all, if you're running for re-election and you have part of your electorate that is black, don't call them negroes. i don't think there's a double standard there. that is stupid. i don't think there's a double standard. i think it's a throwback. i think he misspoke and he's paying the price for it? >> in terms of what peter mentioned in terms of a light-termed bias, does that exist? >> look back in slavery and see that clearly. there have been many, many studies that show there have been, when you look at elected officials, peter has done a lot of research and stuff he writes for the daily beast are about this. elected officials are more likely to be elected who have lighter skin. these are not conversations people don't have. black people talk about this. white people talk about it. don't talk about it together. they talk about it. so i think what harry reid has done is sort of raise
's the big deal there? black men right now in corporate america, there are black men in buildings, media companies, all over the place, where you don't want to be called the angry black man. they changed how they walk, what they wear, they cut their beards. they look certain ways because they know people are going to make a decision based upon how they look and how they sound. if we never, ever talk about this stuff, then we don't realize it exists. so as a black man, look, i'm very sensitive if somebody says, roland, you're an angry guy. i know exactly what that means to somebody else's ears. that could have a negative impact on me in the future. we never talk about it, we never learn from it. >> we're going to have more in a moment. >>> let us know what you think about this debate. join the live chat at about to log on. >>> much more ahead about politics and race and why some are saying harry reid was speaking the truth, as we heard about an ugly reality that studies show even young kids pick up on. i want to show you little bit of something we're going to show you more afte

they spent years waiting for the french to invade again. second, there were i'm in america that didn't want to recognize them, because they felt threatened, they felt slavery threatened in america. then the abuses they from outside began to be repeated inside by the haitian leaders themselves. over time, between inside and outside abuse and neglect, the country just never recovered its footing. but i will say this, they've been making steps toward democracy for nearly 20 years now. democracy has been interrupted twice and restored, once when i was president again with the restoration of president val about to finish his term. we -- president preval about to finish his term. we are going to have a transfer of power when his period of service is up. the important thing for the american people to know is that, i've been going down there since december of 1975, when hillary and i took a delayed wedding trip there. in my lifetime this is the best chance the haitians have had to build a modern, successful state. we had an investment conference there, 600 people came from latin america, car beane,
. and the reality of it is racism, and racist conversations have no place today in america. this term, this you know, like he's going to pass, for example, for white america because he's you know, got this negro die alikt, that's language that harkens back to the 1950s and 60s and confirms to me a mind-set out of step with where america is. but i can assure you if i had as national chairman said that well, it's all behind us and he's apologized let's move on, no one would be accepting that. there has to be a consequence here if the standard is the one that was set in 2002 with trent lott. >> is the consequence that senator reid should step down? >> i believe it is. whether he steps down today or i retire him in november either way he will not be the leader in 2011. >> governor kaine. >> well, first, the senator said i mean, chairman steel said earlier that the republicans were not going to win it back so leader reid is going to be the leader. anybody looking at trent lott's statements praising somebody who had been a pro segregation candidate for president will see that there is no comparison betwee

, at a time when lending is already very tight. america's job creators also see a renewed push by union leaders to pass card check, and many other measures to control the workplace. they see a trial bar working with their allies in congress, and with many state attorneys general, to expand opportunities for new litigation. they see the rise of trade isolationism at home, and abroad, that could threaten their export markets, and now renewed fears about terrorism. and our job creators see the federal government planning to expand the national debt by at least $9 trillion over the next decade. more debt than has been piled up in all the previous years since george washington. they see many states going broke as well. what will the impact be on their companies, and their employees? these are the uncertainties that job creators are wrestling with. uncertainties that call into question how quick or strong our economic recovery will be. and no one is paying is higher price than the american worker. over 7 million americans have lost their job since the recession began. 10% of the work force is

a substantial drug culture. america uses more over-the-counter prescription and elicit drugs than any other nation on earth, and we are a high society in that regard. when we look at sports which are competitive, the rewards have escalated phenomenally and the awards for achievement have escalated monetarily and in terms of social status, and inevitable that people would begin to use performance-related drugs in order to achieve the awards. that was not only predictable, but inevitable. >> are we now at the point where the most important person of an athlete's life is not the mama or daddy or coach, but the pharmacist now. have we relied on the drugs to get the edge? is that still the directional we are going? >> well, we are still in that mode. every time something is added to the list of prohibited drugs, you have people with chemistry backgrounds who are the organizational ability to create a stealth drug beneath the radar that somebody is going to use, because the rewards are just that great. also, the drugs are viral which is to say that once somebody uses the drug and their statistic
